His voice and his influences
There is a profound melancholy in Njel's voice, a strong "joie de vivre" throughout the songs he performs with a disarming sincerity.
Native to the Indian Ocean, this atypical artist has the ability to blend various music styles, from pop to hip-hop, and r'n'b to funk mignled with one another in harmony generating an explosive and most original cocktail.
Being the author, the composer and the producer of his own creations, he was able to build a world that draws its inspiration from pop, hip-hop, r'n'b and funk music.
He has always been paying an homage to his inspirational artists for the last eight years : Brian McKnight, Sting, Usher, Tracy Chapman, George Michael, Christopher Cross, Michael Jackson or Craig David.
This true music-lover has often let himself be admiringly carried away by vocal & artistic performances of great modern music singers, such as Christina Aguilera & Whitney Houston, as well as emblematic figures in hip-hop that are, among others, 50 cent, Busta Rhymas & the incontrovertible Akon.
The birth of destiny
Following a painful rupture which has left Njel a deep scar, the album "Destiny..." rises, as a means for him to cry his love desperately to the woman he still loves despite three years of separation.
From "2gether' to 'That's My Way" or 'Ride On Me' to 'Come Back To Me, the latter being the most symbolic song of the album, we find out about the course of a loving destiny that many of us can relate to : tough and bitter but particularly realistic and so meaningful to the artist.
Because the french album 'Destinée...' fits so well in the english market, Njel is ready in attempting "The American Dream". This is the greatest opportunity for him to project his crying love to the girl he has deep emotions for throughout the world.
Bringing out "Destiny..." worldwide is the greatest evidence of communicating his love and show the one he wants to "Come Back To Him".
